Megacon is an annually held convention focusing on SciFi, Fantasy, Anime, Gaming and comic-book communities that was first started in Orlando in 1993. The original convention held was the OrlandoCon that was held from 1974 until 1994 and was replaced by the MegaCon we know and love today. MegaCon has changed hands a few times in its life, starting with the Crossgen buyout from the creator James Brietbiel in 1999, and ending with the current Canadian owner Informa Canada INC.

With the release of USB Type-C, or USB-C, back in 2014 the USB Implementers Forum finally moved away from using USB-A, and USB-B connectors and created a future-proof, 24 pin double sided connector that is slowly but surely making its way into the market. From smartphones to consumer level laptops we have seen the support of this new format grow. Today we have the opportunity to showcase the Accell USB-C to DisplayPort cable that allows your laptops to use external monitors.

IRDM by GOODRAM is a new lineup of memory products dedicated to gamers and enthusiasts to be unveiled in a world premiere at IFA on 1-6 September 2017 in Berlin.
Laziska Gorne, Poland, 21 July 2017
GOODRAM, the memory brand created by Wilk Elektronik SA, European manufacturer of storage products, is attending IFA 2017 – The Leading Trade Show for Consumer Electronics & Home Appliances. GOODRAM representatives will be present throughout the trade show at booth no. 118, hall 17. The Polish memory company is at the show to premiere a range to meet or exceed the expectations of the most demanding users. IRDM is planned by its developers to be a strong international brand dedicated to gamers and users looking for the fastest products with modern design.
AMD is officially launching its latest series of Ryzen processors today, the affordably priced Ryzen 3. As the branding suggests, Ryzen 3 will complement the previously launched Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 series of desktop processors, but will target lower-cost, entry-level price points.
Ryzen 3 isn’t your typical, entry-level processor, however. Ryzen 3 actually features the same die as its higher-end siblings, but has fewer active cores and symmetrical multi-threading (SMT) has been disabled. Ryzen 3 processors feature quad-core configurations, however, they leverage the same socket and packaging, have the same features, and are fully unlocked for easy overclocking…
AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 CPU Review
“AMD debuts its Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 processors today and we have ran them through their paces to see how they perform.”

Announcement written by: Jason Jacobs on Jul 26 2017, 12:51 pmADATA Debuts XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4Programmable lighting, over 4000MHz, and Intel X299 optimization for gamers and case moddersTaipei, Taiwan – July 25,2017– ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched XPG SPECTRIX D40 DDR4 with variable and programmable RGB lighting. Based on top-selling XPG Dazzle DDR4 modules, SPECTRIX D40 swaps single-color LED for multi-chromatic RGB. It also ships in speeds from 2400MHz to over 4000MHz, vastly faster than the max 3200MHz on Dazzle. With support for Intel XMP 2.0 and highly efficient cooling, SPECTRIX D40 combines tantalizing RGB aesthetics with raw performance and overclockability, catering to enthusiast gamers, case modding artists, and competitive overclockers. SPECTRIX D40 has also been validated for AMD AM4/Ryzen.Smart RGB lighting with ASUS AURA Sync compatibilitySPECTRIX D40 modules integrate a multi-color RGB lighting element in the heatsink with a pre-set cycle active by default. However, users can control lighting sequence and intensity among other variables via software interfaces. One such app is popular ASUS AURA Sync, supported by all current ASUS motherboards. SPECTRIX D40 includes a controller that has been tested AURA Sync compatible, giving users of ASUS motherboards extensive control over RGB effects, including on/off if desired.Pushing DDR4 speeds forwardHaving reached full maturity, DDR4 continues to improve and SPECTRIX D40 embodies efforts to achieve better performance. Modules are available with a factory overclock of over 4000MHz, and start at 2400MHz. SPECTRIX D40 complies with Intel XMP 2.0 requirements to enable easier and more extreme overclocking. At 4000MHz, modules are effectively twice as fast as entry-level DDR4, resulting in tangible performance gains in applications, from gaming to benchmarking.Intel X299 optimizationSince SPECTRIX D40 stands as a flagship product, the XPG team worked with Intel to ensure best performance on the similarly premium X299 platform. SPECTRIX D40 SPD (serial presence detect) settings work with Intel XMP 2.0 parameters to ensure memory modules clocked to 2666MHz or higher operate at their intended speed, as opposed to lesser modules that may downclock to 2400MHz or even 2133MHz due to lacking XMP 2.0 support.Advanced cooling and power managementSPECTRIX D40 modules use meticulously sorted and tested chips plus bespoke ADATA-made 10-layer PCBsand robust circuitry. PCBs incorporate two ounces of pure copper, while heatsinks use aluminum alloy. Heat dissipation efficacy is assured, and power management compensates for the RGB lighting to make sure performance remains stable at all times, even when highly overclocked.About XPG

The HD710 Pro improves on its HD710 predecessor by exceeding IP68 dust and water proofing plus military-grade shock resistance. It enhances the safeguarding of stored data against accidents, damage, and the rigors of active lifestyles, and is available in four colors. The HD710 Pro offers up to 4TB capacity. The refreshed HD650 arrives in a stylish light blue over black color scheme, also providing 4TB capacity – a new milestone for unpowered USB external hard drives. Together, these two new USB 3.1 models bolster the ADATA external hard drive portfolio, giving consumers more choice.HD710 Pro: more durable and bigger than beforeThe original HD710 proved quite successful for ADATA on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
